Finnair Cancels Chairman Switch After Plans Upended by Russia Flight Ban

Finnish carrier Finnair Oyj canceled a planned leadership transition after the closing of Russian airspace upended its long-haul strategy. 

Jouko Karvinen, chairman since 2017, will remain in the post rather than handing over as planned to Kari Stadigh, the former chief executive officer of Sampo Oyj, the airline said in a statement on Friday.
